Roasted Vegetable Pizza

Roasted Vegetable Pizza

Roasted veggies are nestled on a creamy layer of jarred light alfredo sauce and covered in mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses for a meatless meal everyone will love!

Ingredients

  • 5 cups of assorted raw veggies for roasting (I used grape tomatoes, cubed zucchini, diced onion, carrots, sliced mushrooms, and red bell peppers)
  • 1-2 TBS olive oil
  • salt and pepper
  • EASY PIZZA DOUGH  (or purchase pre-made dough from your favorite pizza place or grocery store)
  • 1- 15 oz.  jar light Alfredo sauce, divided 
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • 4 cups part-skim shredded mozzarella, divided 

Instructions

  1. Oven roast the vegetables by preheating the oven to 450 degrees F. On a large sheet pan (or two, you do not want to overcrowd the pan) add all the veggies and drizzle with olive oil, them mix to coat them. Make sure they are in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper. Roast for about 20 minutes, or until veggies are soft, stirring once during cook time. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. (This can be done a day ahead of time or on the same day as you make the pizzas, however, it makes the pizzas come together much faster if you've already roasted the veggies and they are ready to go)
  2. Take 1/2 prepared dough and shape it into a 12" pie, on a perforated pizza pan or on a round sheet pan. Spread dough with about a 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of the jarred alfredo sauce, leaving about a 1/2 inch around the edges uncovered.
  3. Place 1/2 roasted veggies evenly around the pizza on top of the sauce. Sprinkle with half the Parmesan cheese and then half the mozzarella.
  4. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until cheese is melted and starts to turn golden brown. Remove pizza to cutting board and repeat with remaining ingredients to make second pizza.
  5. Allow first pizza to cool for 10 minutes before cutting into 8 slices. Repeat with second pizza.
